Description

FIELD OF THE INVENTION
This type of new practical wheel-chair, is a non-motorized multi-function vehicle, which especially services the disabled.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
At present, the wheel-chair provided to the disabled or the patient in the hospital usually consists of the frame foundation and the sitting block which is fixed to the frame foundation, the chair is equipped with two small wheels under the front of the frame foundation, and two big wheels at the back, when walking, the disabled turns both auxiliary wheels beside the big wheel with both hands and the big wheels roll as the auxiliary wheel is turned round so that the wheel-chair can move same time the big wheel is rotated, so that the disabled can travel up hill.
This kind of motorized wheel-chair has the following disadvantages:
1. It is used for walking and can provide only one kind of a fixed sitting posture. Because the sitting block of the chair is fixed to the frame foundation, and resembles a fixed chair, the user can sit on it with only one posture. During long periods of time, the load on the user's lower body might be aggravated and his blood may not flow fluently. It's also easy to cause body malformation.
2. The disabled or the patient in the hospital can not be cared for by a nurse every minute. Some patients need to do simple tasks, such as standing up to get something or leaning backwards to rest. Because the sitting posture of the present wheel-chair for the handicapped can not be adjusted, both the patient and nurse have many troubles.
3. When the convalescent patient or the lower-limb-cripple sits in the same place for long periods of time it is easy to get bedsores in the summer. This causes the convalescence to be prolonged and other diseases to occur.
4. It is difficult for the sitter to stand with a cane from the sitting position. Because the position can not be adjusted smoothly, the sitter must render some action from one kind of posture to the other, but the patient can not stand with a cane with numb legs.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
In order to overcome the technical disadvantages mentioned above, we invented a practical and safe, electric, multi-function wheel-chair which provides a sitting block with variable inclination.
This new type of practical whet-chair is realized by the following technical project: the chair-like sitting block is piecemeal hinged to the backing plate, and the inclination is adjustable, the back part of which is hinged to the upper parts of two rods curved upwards of the two "L-shape" supporting rods placed symmetrically; the "L-shape" supporting rod is placed under the sitting plate and parallels to it; the front end of supporting rod is hinged to the vertical rod of the beam column on the frame foundation; the transverse worm of the drive-gear is placed in the bearing pedestal placed on the back of the main frame foundation; the transverse worm is driven by the motor M, the worm gear gearing into the transverse worm is placed in the gear-box of the two parts which are extended from the transverse worm; there are two inclined screw control racks which fall into the worm-gear's inner hole with a spiral thread; when the motor drives in worm-gear, the transverse worm can be driven by the worm-gear and make the screw control rack outstretch or retract, so that the sitting posture can be changed.
From the above, we can see the outstanding features of the new practical wheel-chair. They are as follows:
1. The screw control rack is hinged with the sitting block that consists of piecemeal-jointed parts. Because of such a design, the shape of the support of the sitting block can be changed according to the variable sitting posture that is desired.
2. The wheel-chair mentioned above is convenient for the sitter, enabling him to change his sitting, standing or leaning posture from one to another. This not only brings convenience and comfort to the sitter, but also reduces the difficulty of nursing and is profitable for the patient's recovery.
3. The sitting posture can be adjusted conveniently and the patient can change the posture according to the desired conditions. The changing of the sitting posture can safely and smoothly be acquired.

The structural features of this type of new and practical wheel-chair consist yet in: there are two horizontal probe-rods (511) under the rear part of the sitting plates (51) of the chair-like sitting block (5); the back ends of the horizontal probe-rods (511) are hinged with the upper end of the part of the "L-shape" supporting rod (60) which curves upward (601); the from of the probe-rod is drooping and is parallel to the side-rod (60) of the sitting plate (52) with some span, the end of the front probe-rod is hinged to the end of the upper part of the vertical column (411) on the frame foundation (4), the lower part of the side-rod's (50) from part is hinged with a vertical supporting rod (501) extending downwards, the lower part of the supporting rod (501) is hinged to the from of the upper part of the main frame foundation (4); the lower parts of the two drooping floor sheets are hinged to the middle of the vertical front column (57) of the main frame foundation by a hinged rod (56); the motor M of the drive-gear drives the transverse worm (13) by the decelerating gear; the transverse worm (13) and inclined control rack (11) are contained in the gear box (2); the gear box, the transverse worm and the motor are all contained in the protective case (14) as shown in FIGS. 1, 2 and 4.
The adjacent rods are hinged with a pin shaft (3) at the anchor point; the upper part of the control rack (11) is hinged with the back half of the symmetric side-rod (50) of the sitting plates (52); the lower part of the screw control rack is free and can ascend or retract by the drive of worm-gear (refer to FIGS. 4 and 5). There are two floor sheets located at the front of the drooping pedal-rod's lower part; the height of the lowest point A, which the drooping pedal-rod (54) can reach while moving, is lower than that of the lowest point B of the smaller wheel's rim.
The working principle of this type of new practical wheel-chair is shown in FIGS. 6 to 8. FIG. 6 shows its normal sitting posture, at this time, "L-shape" supporting rod (60) and sitting plate (52) are in the horizontal position, backing plate (51) is at right angle with the sitting plate (52).
If the users desires to change the sitting posture, first user should open the starting pushbutton of motor M, so that the transverse worm is driven by the motor, the screw control rack (13) outstretches upwards and the sitting plate (52) is pushed up gradually, as shown in FIG. 7; the inclination angle of the sitting block can be changed by the button. The maximum inclination position of the sitting plate is shown in FIG. 8. At this time, the sitter can stand up and pick up something, or go to the ground by the use of a cane. If he wants to return to the sitting chair, first he should stand steadily, and then push the inverse-button so that the screw control rack retracts and the sitting plate draws back to the proper position.
